Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Visit to the Wildflowers and... the Park!

There is this place that has a humongous amount of wildflowers.... right next to the freeway!
So, yet again, mom made me pose amongst the flowers and here I am... Fortunately, after the shoot, I got to go to the park and play with my pals!

This is my pawsome pal, Wesley, who came from the same organization as me... Norcal Golden Retriever Rescue!

This is our own version of soccer a la dog parkie!

Ma! Find my kong! I'm really not into bumpers!


Honey said...

Hope to go to the parkie with you again soon!
See you Thursday!
Much love,

I really like your park. The grass is so nice and green while ours is still a bunch of winter grass and our favorite mud pond.

Samantha is beautiful! I love these pictures in the wildflowers. I especially love to see blogs like this where it is very evident that the owner loves and takes care of their dog. Thanks for letting me visit this fun blog! Stop by and see my dog, Africa, and I will for sure add you to my blog roll. http://www.trainingboerboels.blogspot.com/

You look so pretty sitting in the flowers, and we are sure you made your mom happy by sitting for the picture. Looks like you had fun at the park.

What beautiful wildflowers! I wonder if they're as tasty as my back yard kind? I wish I could come to that dog park and play with you!

See ya!

Mason Dixie said...

You look beautiful amongst the flowers. And what a great day at the park. The treats are so yummy I love the pumpkin ones! Mom gives them to me sparingly but I could eat the whole bag in one sitting. =)

Hi Sammie!

You are so beautiful next to those wildflowers. :-)

I left you a present on my bloggie!

Sniffs and licks,

Hey Sammie. Mom says she uploads her videos from blogger, there is a video icon next to the picture icon when you are creating a post. That is how she does it. It takes a while so she usually visits while the videos are loading. She only has a camera not a video camera. Hope this is any help. I can post pone if I need to =)
